They lay down blankets and mats on the gym floor of the Champions Islamic Centre for the people seeking shelter from Hurricane Harvey, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

 

This aside, they also donated boxes of food and clothes.

 

The gym was supposed to host a large congregation of people during the Friday morning prayer for the Eid ul Adha festival that is also well reputed as the festival of sacrifice and one of the mist sacred days of Islam.
